Food and Wine Event

Take a delicious tour of the world’s most beautiful theme park at the Busch Gardens® Food & Wine Festival. This all-new event will feature sample-sized portions of superb foods, wines and other refreshments not usually found at Busch Gardens.

VIP tours or specialized group tastings are available based on request.


Bring your group for our spookiest event of the year.  Busch Gardens' Howl-O-Scream® offers chills and thrills to guests brave enough to venture into the dark side of the gardens. Navigate through thematic landscapes filled with horrific creatures found only in nightmares. No place is safe at Busch Gardens® after dark. Be warned, at 6 p.m. Busch Gardens® becomes a seriously scary place and may not be suitable for little ones.

Christmas Town

Joy, laughter and cheer are in the air at Christmas Town*. This one-of-a-kind event combines the magic and merriment of the season with stunning Broadway-style shows, unique gift ideas and millions of twinkling lights.  

Sip on Busch Gardens’ signature peppermint fudge hot chocolate while strolling through Christmas Town’s latest addition, Holiday Hills™ a nostalgic vision of mid-20th-century Christmas traditions complete with tin toys and miles of garland.
